Mushrooms are confusing, thankfully our packaging is not.Posted by Umbo Mushrooms on
You may have heard a lot about functional mushrooms lately. But what are they good for? They can be intimidating but we have put a lot of thought into how to make things simple. But before we go into which mushrooms should be used for what, let’s shift some thinking.
First, mushrooms fall into a category called adaptogens. Adaptogens, by nature, are non-specific to ailments and, you guessed it, adapt to what your body needs. And depending on who you are, most mushrooms are generally good for you like vegetables.
So thinking about and treating mushrooms as a food group like vegetables will bring about the best results. I’ll assume you’re eating your veggies, a wide range of them, and doing it regularly. I’ll also assume when you eat broccoli you don’t quit if you don’t “feel” something. Or you ditch Carrots if you can’t see through walls like superman. You stay the course and include vegetables in your diet. Mushrooms should be looked at the same way. Consistency over time equals results!
Now for the more exciting news! With some mushrooms, you can “feel” something immediately. And while they are adaptogens some mushrooms are known for their effects on particular body parts. Lion's mane can definitely brighten your day and Reishi can provide a calming effect. Jake puts it so nicely by saying “Reishi is like a warm blanket for your central nervous system.”
Our new Tincture packaging is pretty darn clear about what you might want to use each one for.

So while mushrooms can be a bit overwhelming, we’ve simplified it with our packaging. And remaining consistent and supplementing every day will be the fastest way to achieve results!
